My kids attended this school for several years until I was forced to transfer them recently. The teachers are unprofessional. I challenged my son's third grade teacher and she gossip ed about my issues with her to the other teachers. My younger son came home the day after I spoke to her and his teacher who I did not have an issue with told the class I yelled at the staff. I expressed my shock to the principal and his response was " everyone gossips". The school is touted as the best in the county so I had my kids tested. They both tested below average. They are now in public school and I am paying for tutoring. My belief is that EBA teachers focus on gossiping more than they do educating the kids. In addition the teachers cater and focus on a select few. If your kids nationality is not of their persuasion, consider your kids outsiders. The teachers do not create an inclusive environment. The Staff should relearn the verses they send home with the students themselves. Especially the one about gossiping. Think twice before you send your kids to this school.

EBA has gone above and beyond-.... in creating an atmosphere of fear and a since that a child is a "bad child" if they are normal. For some reason, it is ok to hold kids to a standard above what is normal developmentally, and at the same time, allow educational assistants bully children in classrooms. EBA has LARGER CLASS SIZES than public school, and with public school now following common core, EBA no longer has "more prepared" students. My child, who earned stellar grades in EBA is now BEHIND in public school, and is playing catch up. Please think twice before spending your hard earned dollar for an education that is sub-par when compared to public schools.

This school is able to focus on learning rather than behavior problems like the public school counterparts. They claim to have children performing at least a grade level ahead of the public schools. I found this to be true with my daughter testing 2-3 grades ahead in different areas. I love this school.

My Son and I love EBA! My son has been going to the school for two yrs. and he absolutely loves it. He enjoys the small school atmosphere. I like the open door policy, and I always know what my child is learning. Just an overall excellent program!

I have been involved with this school for 7 years and I will continue to be involved with it for at least another 8 years for my youngest to complete the 8th Grade. It is a wonderful school and the academic program is excellent along with the Spiritual aspect. Love, Love, Love this school.

I loved this school! The curriculum is high but the children do very well. My daughter loved it. The teachers always have communication with parents and you always know what your children are doing in class and exactly what homework they have. We left becuase we moved out of state. Otherwise we would definitely still be there. We miss it a lot. Any other school pales in comparison!

My daughter attended this school for nine years including preschool. It is a wonderful school with very concerned administration and teachers who have a big heart for the kids. There is a defined effort on running the school professionally and with the students best interests at heart. My daughter received a great foundation at this school and I can still see the benefits of that today.
